Saints had a collective off day as they suffered a 3-0 beating at Blackpool.

Without the injured Rickie Lambert they missed an early penalty with Billy Sharp’s spot kick saved by Matthew Gilks and it went downhill from there.

Stephen Dobbie converted from the spot for Blackpool before getting another from open play while Ian Evatt headed home the third early in the second half.

Despite the disappointment of a comprehensive defeat Saints could at least take solace they still maintained a six point gap to third placed West Ham after they were beaten 4-2 at home by Reading, who moved to within two points of top spot.
